HIST 396 - Out of the Archives: Adventures in Digital History (4)


Hands-on, project-based course examining the influence of emerging digital media on the research, writing, teaching, and presentation of history. We will examine the key issues, opportunities, and potential drawbacks of using the internet and digital tools to produce outward-facing history projects through reading and discussing current scholarship on the topic. The course also offers the opportunity to experiment with a variety of digital tools and resources. Teams of students will conduct archival research and then build an exhibit based on that research using website creation tools and other digital technology. The result will be outward-facing projects that make pieces of our local history visible on the internet. Odd years Spring.
